Forum: presidential_recordings Subject: Presidential Recordings Collection

Welcome to the Presidential Recordings Collection. I am the librarian at the Scripps Library and over the next few months will be uploading many more recordings. If you have any questions about the presidential recordings, please feel free to post them here or contact me at scrippslibrary@virginia.edu.

The speeches in the collection are relatively easy to navigate. The secret White House recordings are much more difficult, but can be extremely rewarding.

Check back often as new recordings will be going up every few days. Thanks,

Mike

Oyez, oyez!

Yes, thank you for these recordings. Everyone should have access to these, and now they do. Thank you.

Thank you for taking the time to create a dedicated section for these important recordings. In fact, the idea occurred to me in January when I uploaded number of State of the Union Addresses to the site, as you can see I have now moved those into this section of the site along with a few other presidential recordings. Might I be so bold as to suggest that this category should fall under a "Historic Recordings" section of the archive? There really should be a place for speeches such as MLK's "I Have a Dream" and other moments such as VE-Day reports, etc. Stay tuned! I have a few more presidential recordings in my personal library that I'll be adding as time allows. You can look forward to: Clinton's Denial of Affair, Nixon's Resignation and his Announcement of the end of the Vietnam Conflict.

Actually, you didn't manage to move your recordings into this collection, you just added the category 'Presidential Recordings', which is somewhat different.

However, I just moved the State Of The Union addresses into the collection. My impression is that we would like to expand this collection beyond University of Virginia material, so if anyone else has relevant material, please upload, and I can move into this collection when I approve it.

[Also, I believe there are a few _very_ old Presidential Recordings still in Open-Source Audio that I need to dig out and move into this collection.]

Yeah, I was having some problems with that. The system for non-music audio recordings here is a bit flaky/confusing if you ask me, particularly on the contributions side of things.

Ah, you don't have permissions to move things into Presidential Recordings, because it's a 'closed' collection right now - intentionally so. Sorry I wasn't more specific on that. But we're happy for people to upload into Open-Source Audio, and we'll move across when relevant.

Some of the presidential recordings in "open source audio" which haven't found their way over here can be found at:
